Women & Gender in the Early Modern World

The study of women and gender offers some of the most vital and innovative challenges to current scholarship on the early modern period. For more than a decade now, Women and Gender in the Early Modern World has served as a forum for presenting fresh ideas and original approaches to the field. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in scope, this Ashgate book series strives to reach beyond geographical limitations to explore the experiences of early modern women and the nature of gender in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa. We welcome proposals for both single-author volumes and edited collections which expand and develop this continually evolving field of study.

In addition to works focused on early modern Europe, we are eager for submissions about women in non-western cultures, the colonial Americas, and the role of women and gender in science, magic and technology.

To submit a proposal, or for more information, please contact: Erika Gaffney, Publishing Manager, egaffney@ashgate.com
